Glow Stick Face Serum

37125734_10101212983338862_7431357032076148736_n

Why is the Glow Stick Face Serum amazing?!? read on to find out why each of the oils…

Recipe:

10 drops doTERRA Blue Tansy essential oil

10 drops doTERRA Copaiba essential oil

7 drops doTERRA Frankincense essential oil

10 ml of Kate Blanc’s Rosehip Seed oil – I purchased off of Amazon.

Mix it in a 10ml rollerball and watch your skin GLOW!

WHY BLUE TANSY?? “Blue tansy is a flower in the chamomile family. Its bold hue comes from oil extracted from the flower itself. As striking as pure blue tansy oil is, it’s well-known and respected in the natural skin care space as a calming anti-inflammatory. “There are many aromatherapy benefits with blue tansy essential oil as it has a warm, delicious herby aroma and is really good for calming the mind and emotions and soothing anxious or stressful thoughts,” said natural beauty expert, mbg collective member, and herbalist Jessa Blades.” From: https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/blue-tansy-skin-care-benefits

WHY FRANKINCENSE??  “Heals Skin and Prevents Signs of Aging
Frankincense has the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes, and appearance as someone ages. It may help tone and lift skin, reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and blemishes, and alleviate cuts, scrapes, or scratches. It may also be beneficial for fading of weight gain skin imperfections, surgery blemishes or marks associated with pregnancy, and for soothing dry or cracked skin.
According to a review published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, frankincense oil reduces redness and skin irritation, while also producing a more even skin tone. Studies suggest that it’s the pentacyclic triterpene (steroid-like) structure of frankincense oil that contributes to its soothing effect on irritated skin.”
From: https://draxe.com/what-is-frankincense/

WHY COPAIBA? “Supple Skin:We know that copaiba oil is used both internally and in topical application. Apart from relieving aches/discomfort and helping alleviate dry/irritated/cracked skin as well as cuts,scrapes, and bruises. Copaiba oil can also be used to make your skin softer. It helps in the regeneration of collagen, the tissue that lends our skin its elasticity. Regular application of copaiba oil can help you get softer skin.” From:
https://www.stylecraze.com/articles/uses-and-benefits-of-copaiba-oil/

You had me at regeneration of collagen!

And finally WHY ROSEHIP SEED OIL?? Just take a look at the amazing benefits below! I purchased an Organic Rosehip Seed oil off of Amazon!

37114401_10101212983453632_6002812559663562752_n

Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth and for after care

image.png

Okay, here is my quick story and you can read below about doTERRA specific pregnancy info as well as see some of my oil uses for labor and after care. I just wanted to touch quickly on some uses for oils in pregnancy and my experiences.

I started using oils in 2009 before my 1st pregnancy but I wasn’t sure quite how to use them effectively during the pregnancy so I just used them here & there. And so my first real “doTERRA pregnancy” was with my daughter in 2012. I was living in Arizona at the time and had The Essential Midwife aka Stephanie Fritz as my care provider (YAY!)

That is when I began to really see the power of these essential oils and doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality supplements (a completely different pregnancy than my first with these as my prenatal vitamins). The whole pregnancy + birth experience was so drastically different from my first in the hospital to a home birth with my second. Stephanie taught me so much about listening to your body and the power of your body as well as the power of these essential oil gifts.

I have used these oils for early pregnancy and throughout my pregnancy for nausea & energy support, for head tension, back tension, sleeping support, MOOD support (such a huge one with all the hormones!), and since your immune system is already weakened… IMMUNE support is another huge one!

Then comes the fun part at the end of pregnancy with all of the stretching, growing, and uncomfortable feelings. The oils will be there for you all the way through pregnancy (think stretch marks) and the saving grace during birth (thinking calming). See below for info on oil safety from Stephanie Fritz’s site and then some of the oils I have used during labor with my 2nd and 3rd. I am planning on doing these exact same things with my 4th labor because they were so helpful to me and made all the difference in the recovery process emotionally & physically.

After Nora (my second birth) born at home with midwife, Stephanie Fritz.

From Stephanie Fritz’s website, The Essential Midwife: “You will find warnings everywhere about which oils you should and should not use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. These previously were very valid concerns because of the impurities that were so prevalent in the oils available and the threat that they posed in pregnancy, but now that we enjoy the purity of oils that we have with dōTERRA it is no longer an issue.

It is dōTERRA’s sourcing and commitment to pure oils that makes them safe. Toxic oils are either harvested from the wrong species of plant, not distilled properly, harvested at the wrong season, tampered with, chemicals and fillers added and other such things. This is the very reason we can use dōTERRA oils safely, because of their care and commitment to pure safe oils.

You may see mixed information out there in different books about oils and their safety in pregnancy and with your newborn. Please understand these books were written with all oil users in mind. They will be ultra conservative because their readers may not necessarily be dōTERRA users. The information I give in my book comes from personal experience in my midwifery practice.

dōTERRA has set a standard that reassures us we can use doTERRA oils with confidence in pregnancy. During pregnancy, there is heightened sensitivity so we might use a little less of the oils but they can be used very effectively. In pregnancy, we are very protective about what we put into our body. We should have confidence in the oils through pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

Clary Sage is relaxing, calming and soothing. In general, women should not use it during pregnancy unless they have a lot of experience with the oils, simply because there are so many oils that can accomplish the same thing that maybe aren’t quite as aggressive as that one is.

Peppermint is a caution only for lactating moms, but only a minor caution, it “may” decrease milk supply for some. Other than that, oils are very well founded for pregnancy.

I always say to follow your own intuition.
You are the one who was given stewardship over your body, and everyBODY is different, so do what you feel comfortable with.

All of the attending midwives at my second birth…what a beautiful experience it was!

Now onto the uses of oils during labor for both my home birth and my third birth at the hospital…read on.

image

 

My saving graces at the hospital in labor and afterwards. The diffuser has been amazing with all different oil combos…Balance & Wild Orange (or Citrus Bliss blend) was the main one we had going on during labor (with my second & third birth). Peppermint and a citrus (energy & focus), lavender & Serenity calming blend (relaxing & calming anxious feelings), Elevation Joyful blend (uplifting & calming to stressful situations) to switch it up. I can’t even count how many nurses came into our room and said it smells so good like a spa!

Also, I am always disinfecting my hands especially at the hospital as well as the hospital room with my On Guard cleaning spray. Immortelle as my peri spray to heal up naturally down there especially if you tore (this recipe and all of these recipes are available in Stephanie Fritz’s book, Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond – click here to get your own copy). The Peppermint water spray was amazing for labor as I had dips in temperature and even after birth I use it to control my temperature. So cooling and refreshing! Read more about the oils I was using for after care of myself and my babies.

We have been following the instructions in Stephanie Fritz’s book for the newborn care. Since she was our midwife with our second child and we were able to have her guiding us through everything…the book has been a great resource since she can’t be physically with us.
We did Frankincense on the crown of the head and spine with both our second & third babies. This is to increase bonding and as a protection to the baby. The bonding is so strong with this oil – I still remember that smell so vividly and the calming energy it provided. We did Balance Grounding blend on both babies and mama’s feet…we have been using a lot of this during this time of transition. We used Myrrh and/or Frank for the healing of the cord stump. We have been using Melissa on the bottoms of our feet for DNA repair.
All of this info is in her book so if you are trying to get pregnant or are currently pregnant…here is the link to her book “Essential oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies” by Stephanie Fritz. It’s an awesome guide to have during this process.
Let me know if you have any questions about the oils. They have made pregnancy & post partum for baby #2 and #3 so much better. This was definitely my best pregnancy experience yet with no discomfort besides I was huge. Haha. I really believe it was my healthy eating and my oil/vitamin routine. I am excited to experience #4 and I need to start packing up my oil bag now because I know just how important it is!

If you are ready to get started with the oils, please feel free to message me anytime: samanthahud@yahoo.com

OR look at some options for starter oil sets that would be perfect for pregnancy – the new AromaTouch diffused kit would be an awesome choice since you would have a diffuser for the hospital and all of the key oils I love and couldn’t live without (plus FCO for diluting)! There are many options to getting started and I really encourage you to look into it. I look forward to hearing from you! Sam
